"I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass:" If Trump Wants a Campaign Song, This Would Be a Candidate

I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"
They point their crooked little fingers ar everybody else
Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat

Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
But you might feel better if I gave you some cash
The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight
You don't want to work, you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it
Get over it
If you don't want to play, then you might as well split
Get over it, Get over it

It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak
You're makin' the most of your losin' streak
Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain
You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down
Complain about the present and blame it on the past
I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

Get over it
Get over it
All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

Get over it
Get over it
It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit
Get over it, get over it

Always loved this 'kick ass rocker'. The live version on "Hell Freezes Over" is great. Happy to see the Eagles on the right side of PC on this one. Did Frey help write this or was it all Henley?

It was also the first song written by bandmates Don Henley and Glenn Frey when the band reunited.

Interesting how this song applies to the situation today, considering that it was written in 1994.

The ethos of the song has remained constant throughout the evolution of homo sapiens; it's why we're still here - for better of for worse. WTF are we doing here? That's a whole different question.
